Notes:


Suzannah Espie


From Suzannahespie.com:

Suzannah Espie is a Melbourne, Australia based singer songwriter who has been casting spells over audiences ever since she first took to the stage with her alt-country pop band, GIT, in 1997. A woman of compelling beauty — statuesque, with piercing blue eyes framed by golden curls — she has a voice to match, an intoxicating mix of country, soul, blues and pop. A gentle, sweet trill that can move grown men to tears one moment, or an Aretha-esque hellcat belt that can raise the roof the next; however she sings it though, it’s still unmistakeably Suzannah Espie. It is as a solo artist Espie has truly come into her own…

It’s hard to believe now that, despite her prodigious talent, Espie was beset by self-doubt and shyness early on in her career, which she moved to Melbourne from Fremantle at aged 18 to pursue in earnest. She tells of forcing herself to get up at Fitzroy’s Rainbow Hotel to sing once a week. “Then I’d go and have a cry in the toilets afterwards because I thought it was so horrible.”

Collard recalls the first time he went over to Suzannah’s house to play some music together. “Absolutely nothing happened,” he says with a laugh. “She was too nervous to sing a note.”

While Espie’s confidence and profile have grown over the years, she remains as earthy and honest as the music she writes and performs.  “I still don’t think I’m a good songwriter. Occasionally I’ll pull a good one out of my arse,” she says in typically straight-talking Suzannah fashion.

San Fermin


San Fermin is an American baroque pop band started by Brooklyn-based composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone. San Fermin took shape after Ludwig-Leone’s graduation from Yale University, where he studied composition. Despite being in several bands in high school and even some during college, Ludwig-Leone did not decide to focus on making pop music until the end of his college career.  After his graduation from Yale, Ludwig-Leone retreated to Canada’s secluded Banff Centre, where he wrote what would eventually become San Fermin. The New Yorker recognized the musicianship of the entire eight-piece live ensemble, noting their ability to “deliver epic and emotion-laden rock, with glorious and operatic vocals, electronic break beats, horns, strings, and other flourishes.”

The band released their self-titled debut on September 17, 2013,  NPR called the record “one of the year’s most surprising, ambitious, evocative and moving records,” praising Ludwig-Leone for his ability to write a collection of songs “as easy to love as they are to admire.” (Source: Wiki)

August Winds


“This tune is from Sting’s 2013 album titled The Last Ship, his first album of original material since 2003. The Last Ship is also the basis for his late-2014 Broadway production. Sting grew up in the ‘50s during the dying days of shipbuilding in his town, which was dependent on it. The local industry finally collapsed in the 80’s. Now Sting pays a tribute with a song cycle heavy on Celtic sea chanteys, acoustic instrumentation, and somber, hard won truths. A lilting song such as “August Winds”, is where Sting is at his purest.” (Source: iTunes)

Her family was expelled from the church when she was six, after her mother came out as a lesbian. Lambert taught herself how to play piano and write songs at age 6, as an escape from her traumatic and abusive household.

His debut album Indiana was released on May 1, 2007. McLaughlin grew up playing piano since early childhood, though he disliked the lessons, and often sought to avoid them. Along with his older sister and brother, Jon McLaughlin began piano lessons at a very young age presenting an ability his parents hoped to foster. He loved playing the piano, and creating his own sounds, but lessons was another thing. “I took lessons every Thursday and I’d come home complaining to my mom. My dad traveled during the week for work, and when he’d call on Thursday nights, I’d inevitably give him the same grief I gave my mom. To their credit, they never forced the lessons; they allowed me to talk it through and somehow, at the end of every conversation, I’d say, “I think I am going to keep going.” They had infinite patience with me.”  (Bio Sources: Wiki and MTV.)

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills…
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust…
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home…

And I built a home
for you
for me

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it’s knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held on me
Held on as tightly as you held on me…

And I built a home
for you
for me
